Creepy Valentine's Day Gift: Print Your Face In 3D...Chocolate

Within our lifetimes there will be a machine you simply walk into, enjoy a quick scan and exit to receive a detailed miniature version of yourself in any candy variety you like. I'm thinking marzipan — it'll portray my creamy complexion properly. But until then, there's still a way to give your chocolate self to your loved ones this Valentine's Day. And isn't that what V-Day is really about? Chocolate and you?

Fabcafe in Tokyo's trendy Shibuya neighborhood is offering a 2-day workshop during which participants scan their faces using a 3D scanner, then print molds using a 3D printer. The molds turn out eerie candy likenesses meant to be nestled as a "surprise" in a box of Valentine's chocolates. As in, "Surprise! My filling's brain-flavored!" or "Surprise, my head actually IS full of peanuts!" or "Surprise! I spent our vacation money flying to Tokyo and back to make you this mold of my face we can fill with chocolate over and over again!"

In case that's not your idea of a romantic gesture, check out our way better guide to gifts for the special guy or high-heeled lady in your life.
